10:13 However, the prince of the kingdom of Persia was opposing me for twenty-one days. But 1  Michael, one of the leading princes, came to help me, because I was left there 2  with the kings of Persia.

Daniel 10:21

Daniel 12:1


12:1 “At that time Michael,

the great prince who watches over your people, 6 

will arise. 7 

There will be a time of distress

unlike any other from the nation’s beginning 8 

up to that time.

But at that time your own people,

all those whose names are 9  found written in the book,

will escape.

1 tn Heb “and behold.”

2 tc The Greek version of Theodotion reads “I left him [i.e., Michael] there,” and this is followed by a number of English translations (cf. NAB, NRSV, NLT).

3 tn Heb “a book of truth.” Several English versions treat this as a title of some sort (cf. NIV, NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT), although the NAB’s rendering “the truthful book” regards “truth” as an attributive adjective, as does the present translation.

4 tn The word “princes” is supplied for clarity.

5 tn The pronoun is plural in Hebrew, suggesting that Michael is the angelic prince of Daniel and his people.

6 tn Heb “stands over the sons of your people.”

7 tn Heb “will stand up.”

8 tn Or “from the beginning of a nation.”

9 tn The words “whose names are” are added in the translation for stylistic reasons and for clarification.
